Utilising existing GUI code in koda.

I have a program I made long ago for something but I never saved the koda file so it would make it a complete pain for me to visually tweak anything because as far as I am aware, I would have to design an entirely new GUI.

Would it be possible for you guys at AutoIt to add functionality to Koda so that you can take an existing GUI section, with while loop and cases and all and then koda would literally build it ready for tweaking and where existing things still exist and have been tweaked, it would tweak such details and keep all the existing case information and added formatting things that were manually tweaked etc?

This would be really amazing and I feel that other people would benefit from it. I can't be the only person who makes a GUI, doesn't save it and then has no problems making minor tweaks in-code but struggles like hell to go rearranging things perfectly. That is where using a GUI (koda) to make and arrange a GUI you are making, makes everything easy and pleasure to deal with.

tldr;

Example:
A friend gives me his code and wants help. The GUI is just a mess, but trying to do all the alignment and positioning all by digits in code would be a pain. I cannot just hallucinate where everything is based on pixel locations and sizes. So I would take the entire GUI chunk of code, all the form/controls/formatting functions/while loop/switch/case in it's entirety and paste it into an area of Koda and press a button. Koda would then build the GUI on the screen, placing all the controls and formatting them with the instructions that may have been added and keeps the case information as-is. Then when you make your alterations in Koda, you go to export it and it makes an entirely new export that re-makes (from scratch as if you had made this GUI from scratch) all the code for controls, size, placement etc and then also adds all the existing case code back as part of the code you then send (or manually copy/paste as I do) to Scite editor.

Is there any chance this could be implemented? I think this could help a lot of people with their own scripts and others'.

Hi Morthawt,

 

Correct me if I misunderstand, Koda has an import function that does this...

You can then save a new kxf file with your new settings.

I forgot all about that. I only ever tried it once back in the ancient past but Koda crashed so I never gave it a thought since. I will give it a try again. Thanks.

Crashed again

It does not like importing an AutoIt script. My idea is that Koda would import it, build the GUI and take on all the formatting and everything and then preserve everything else like the cases and all the rest of the script, so that you can export it and it would be your same old script just with your tweaked out fixed GUI.

It's also possible ISN AutoIt Studio has import functionality.

I thought this was that cool looking (but I think abondoned) Koda replacement someone made with AutoIt it's self. But this I think is not it. Plus I do not see anything in here to do with a GUI. So I am a bit confused.

It is a complete IDE for AutoIt, and includes a GUI designer, and far from abandoned, where as koda is very much abandoned as far ad I know.

I have looked up and down and I find nothing in there about GUI or forms other than a folder on the right which looks like it is about forms but nothing is in there and the script I am using does have 2 forms in it.

Here is a sample script I made. Originally the gui was inside a function (as the one I am working on is) but that did not work so I commented out the func and I still see no way of seeing any GUI editing capability anywhere in the entire program:

 

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>



Sleep(3000)
;~ CreateGUI()

;~ Func CreateGUI()
    #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
    $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 148, 81, 192, 124)
    $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 8, 8, 75, 25)
    $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 8, 40, 121, 21)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

    While 1
        $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $nMsg
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit

        EndSwitch
    WEnd
;~ EndFunc   ;==>CreateGUI

I don't see anything wrong or missing in Koda. Did I say that I use Koda for everything. I use Koda for everything. :D

      Hi all,

      I am having a little trouble with ‘GUICtrlSetResizing’ an hoping someone could push me in the direction of best practice.

      I have a basic GUI created to a set size with the enabled abilities to resize it:

      GUICreate("Test", 500, 450, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX))

      Inside this I have an image and label:

      GUICtrlCreateLabel($Image1StampInfo, 10, 395, 480, 20, $SS_CENTER) GUICtrlCreatePic($TheImage, 25, 25, 450, 350)

      Using:

      Case ($GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE or $GUI_EVENT_RESTORE or $GUI_EVENT_RESIZED)

      I activate:

       
      GUICtrlSetResizing($TheImageBox, $GUI_DOCKAUTO) GUICtrlSetResizing($Image1Stamp, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)

      This works fine with the image but not with the label – the label after a bit of resizing seems to get stuck in different places in the GUI as if the $GUI_DOCKAUTO has not worked properly.

      So 2 questions if I may. 

      1)    Have I used $GUI_DOCKAUTO incorrectly for use with lables?

      2)    I am happy to manually set new sizes dynamically but how? I can get the size of the window with ‘WinGetPos()’ but how do I set new size parameters for the ‘label’ and ‘image’?

      Thank you in advance.

      Good evening guys ( almost good night here in Italy )  
      How are you? Hop you're fine  
      I'm trying to do a Login Form ( I did, but I'm missing something in the management ), that allows the user to login when the script is launched, and, when the main GUI is opened, the user can Logout and Login with another username and password.
      The username and password "checking" I do is done by a text file, which in there are username and password, crypted through _Crypt_EncryptData().
      The "issue" I'm having at the moment, is to manage the Login form when the user hasn't already done the login, and so, the main GUI is not visible, but is created...
      I create the main GUI after the Login form... I tried with WinActive, WinGetState, but nothing changed ( even at the first Login, the script says ( through a MsgBox ) that the Win does exists ( or is active... ) and, as I want, it is not shown again...

      I really don't know If I missed something, or, I don't know...
      I'm going crazy for this thing...
      If someone could help me, I'd really appreaciate it!
      Thanks for the reading

      Hello, 
      I'm wondering if it is possible to read a radio button off a GUI running by another program? 
      Someone created these Outlook emails that when open appear to be in a GUI format. I could easily come up with a way of navigating these fields by using tab inputs, and then copying specific fields that I need. However there is a spot on the form that has 4 choices of radio buttons, asking for what the status of the task is, and I have no idea how to store which one of these was pressed. 
      End game is to be able to go through thousands of these forms, take input from specific fields from this GUI form in outlook and copy into cells in an excel spreadsheet. I believe I could create a script to do everything I need, if I could just obtain the value from which radio button was pressed.
      Any advice on how to obtain which radio button was press in this outlook form would be appreciated.
      Thanks,
      If I knew VBA better Outlook might have its own functions for figuring this out.
       
      Example:

      In this example I'd want to be able to know that the 2nd or Assigned radio button was selected. Only 1 button is able to be selected at a time. I'm assuming the way to do this would be to tab through the form get to the first box and then run some command to check if pressed then if no, keep checking till I find which of the 4 were pressed.

      Good morning guys
      How are you? Hope you're fine
      I'm doing some field checking...
      Can you suggest me something? Something like: If the user doesn't prompt anything in a field, MsgBox and focus on the "blank" field, else, keep up with the script.
      I thought on a nested If...Else, but I have something like 10+ edit to control...
      Thanks guys! 
      EDIT:
      And I would like to know either how to retrieve all listview item ( 2 columns ) from a ListView...
      Column A|Column B
      abcd         | 1234
      bcda         | 1432
      How can I retrieve an array with abcd|1234|bcda|1432 ?
      Thanks

      I want the number in a file to be overwritten with the next number up each time a button is pressed. 
      So it is pressed once, the number '1' is written to the file. It is pressed again and the number '2' overwrites the first number.
      At the moment I get the number 1 written, but can't get it to overwrite. What I have so far:
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=C:\Users\soulf\Desktop\CalcGui\RLCalc.kxf $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 437, 426, 141) $One = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 32, 72, 25, 25) GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### Func First ()     $fPath = "C:\temp\First.txt"     $fOpen = FileOpen ($fPath, 2)     $Counter = FileReadLine ($fpath)     $counter = $counter + 1     $fWrite = filewriteline ($fPath, $counter)     FileClose ($fpath) EndFunc While 1     $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()     Switch $nMsg         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE             Exit         Case $One             Call ("First")     EndSwitch WEnd I tried a Do Until statement, but that just puts the numbers 1 to 5 in the file.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
